Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Amalia Selle
In raising of the next generation, we share a responsibility to educate children about the importance of protecting and preserving the environment. The "Saving Our World" series presents environmental issues with clarity. This book on habitat protection begins with a basic explanation of habitats and then presents the specific difficulties threatening each major habitat (fresh and salt water, forests, grasslands, tundra, and deserts). The question time boxes focus on further questions—such as the importance of coral reefs—or supply suggestions for how the reader can help preserve our world. The eye-opener boxes provide interesting and sometimes shocking facts. The wetlands, for example, are home to more than one-third of the United States' endangered and threatened species. This graphically pleasing nonfiction book could easily be used as further enrichment to back up a science textbook. While certainly not a text dense science book, advanced terms such as species, biodiversity, global warming, and extinction are clearly explained. Whether used to review material or to expose children to issues facing our environment, this series would be a valuable addition to any classroom or personal library. The readable text, pictures, maps, index, and glossary make it accessible to various reading and interest levels. Reviewer: Amalia Selle
